HUGS Fair coming on March 8

Help kids grow safely

The 12th Annual H.U.G.S. (Help Us Grow Safely) Children's Health and Safety Fair for youth will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Henkle Middle School in White Salmon on March 8.

This free event is open to all area youths and their families.

Many educational booths, giveaways and demonstrations will focus on fun and healthy opportunities and activities in our area. There will be music, entertainment, special guests, traditional displays, new exhibits and much more.

"Once again we will have the popular 'passport' activity for children," said Susan Kerr, WSU-Klickitat County Extension Director. "Youth can earn a special prize if they get the squares on their passport stamped by participating exhibitors. Many exhibitors will have hands-on activities for youth, so the passport opportunity will reward youth for getting actively involved at the H.U.G.S. Fair."

As always, local businesses have donated a wide variety of door prizes to give away. Healthy and affordable food will be available for purchase.
